Is it necessary/advisable to dead head snow drops or should you just leave the whole thing to die back?

We had a problem a few months ago  and the little blighters were even coming out to play in broad daylight!

I hung a plant saucer underneath the squirrel proof feeder using cable ties and that catches any dropped food. In addition to that I added an inverted long flower pot and small washing up bowl to the pole. This stops the rats from climbing up (not the squirrels though). Also bought some Rat Repel on line and sprinkled it under the sh


eds and we've not been  troubled since.
